Premier League Top Scorers After Match Day 6

Premier League Top Scorers After Match Day 6

After match day 6, which saw Video Assistant Referee (VAR) chunked off nothing short of six goals across all weekend Premier League matches, here is the fledging scorer's chart.

Erling Haaland has wasted no time in announcing his arrival in the Premier League with two consecutive hat-tricks.

The usual suspects, Son Heung-Min and Mohammed Salah have not had the best of start to the season by their standard.

Mohammed Salah has scored a paltry two goals in six games, while last season's joint top scorer Heung Ming Son is yet to open his Premier League goal account for the 2022/23 season.

Both of them shared the Premier League Golden boot last season with 23 goals apiece.

Below is the list of the Premier League’s top scorers after match day 6.

1. Erling Haaland (10 goals 1 assist)

The prolific Norwegian striker has adapted well to the Premier League with 10 goals from 6 games, including back-to-back hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

His gigantic stature and goal-scoring ability has been a nightmare for defenders in Premier League.

He is the dangerous presence in the box that Pep Guardiola's side has been lacking, no wonder, the Spaniard tactician said, "He (Haaland) has the talent of a legend".

With a new record for 10 goals in the first 6 games in the Premier League, the best is yet to come, Erling Braut Haaland but for now, the former Borussia Dortmund man will turn attention to one of his favourite competitions, the UEFA Champions League. 

2. Alexander Mitrovic Fulham (6 goals, 0 assists)

Alexander Mitrovic has continued from where he stopped in the English Championship by banging in goals for the newly-promoted Cottagers in the Premier League.

He has scored six goals in six goals, a massive improvement from his performance the last time Fulham gained promotion in 2020 when he scored only three goals.

He has provided danger and in some games consolation for his team as he would manage to poke a goal in to avoid a clean sheet defeat.

He is not a real threat to Haaland's golden boot race as the Serbian is more prone to be injured and could miss several games but for now, we would take him as the nearest man to the Norwegian goal-machine.

3. Ivan Toney, Brentford (5 goals, 2 assists)

Ivan Toney further underlined his importance for Brentford with a hat-trick against Leeds United on Saturday to take his tally to five goals from six games.

The Northampton-born striker has benefited from high pressing which makes Brentford a much-attacking threat when they break on a counter-attack.

In every game they have played this season, Brentford have managed to score at least one goal -- including their 4-0 win over Manchester United.

 4. Harry Kane, Tottenham (5 goals, 0 assist)

Harry Kane is no stranger to scoring goals in the Premier League, and he has enjoyed a fruitful spell in front of goal this season with five goals in 6 games.

He was on target for Tottenham in the 2-1 win over Fulham on Saturday.

The English forward has won two Premier League Golden boot awards.

5. Rodrigo Leeds United  (5 goals and 1 assist)

Rodrigo scored a brace against Southampton in the second week of the before adding other strikes against Chelsea and Wolves to score four goals in five Premier League matches this season.

6. Wilfred Zaha, Crystal Palace (4 goals, 1 assist)

The Ivorien International was linked with a move away from Selhurst Park, but he eventually stayed, and he has continually shouldered the goal-scoring responsibilities for Patrick Viera's men.

He has scored four goals in five matches, including a strike against Liverpool.

7. Mac Allister, Brighton (4 goals, 0 assist)

The Argentine midfielder has been a key part of the Brighton team and has enjoyed an impressive start to the season after winning four out of six matches.

He scored a brace against Leicester City to take his tally to four goals in six games.

8. Robert Firmino, Liverpool  (3 goals and 3 assists)

Firmino took advantage of Darwin Nunez's suspension to remind everyone of his qualities again with a brace against Bournemouth and two assists in the game.

He also scored against Newcastle in a 2-1 win for Liverpool.

9. Gabriel Jesus,  Arsenal  (3 goals and 3 assists)

The Brazilian International joined the Gunners in the summer from Manchester City to take up the goalscoring challenge at the Emirates.

He has lived up to expectations so far with three goals and three assists in six Premier League games.

10. Marcus Rashford,  Manchester United  (3 goals and 2 assists)

Rashford and Manchester United have enjoyed a resurgence in the Premier League following their poor start.

Manchester United lost their first two Premier League matches against Brighton and Brentford, but they have found their feet again, winning four consecutive Premier League matches, and Rashford has been pivotal in that run.

He scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday to move Manchester United up to fifth on the log.
